When the Bluey’s jumping out of the water, he will create a splash of water and it would look like in the photo below (photo 01). This kind of the splash should be extended higher from the water surface but not spread too wide around.
We also search for the references of the splash when an object floating on the chilling water and below (video 01) is the look that we think it should be. It should be white and gentle.

With the drowning scene, we will make the splash more powerful and it will create a great impact on the surface when the object interacts with water. Below are 2 references (Video 01 & Video 02) that we found that they are very helpful in this particular scene.
